Ryusei Kajiyama’s turning point in life was at university, when he aimed to become the top player for Nihon University Phoenix, an American football team that is very famous in the Japanese sports industry. Due to competition from 130 people, Nihon University Phoenix did not allow practice opportunities for first years. But through strenuous efforts he soon stood out in the team. His first position was the wide receiver; he seized his opportunity when he filled in as a substitute for his injured teammate at the Koshien Bowl in front of 37,000 people. Regardless of his injuries, he contributed to making Phoenix the Nº1 American football team in Japan. He received an award as a leading receiver and the MVP for Chuck Mills award.
The experience helped Mr Kajiyama build his philosophy of life: everything starts with challenging yourself, to concentrate on one thing and shake off all disturbances. As a consequence, you are able to surpass common sense and make your goals come true, and that is how you truly enjoy your work and personal life.
The environment and facilities can be obtained through investment, but the human resource with indomitable spirit is the true treasure of a company.
